These tweets (and one retweet) are from my friend Ryan, a journalist who has been on the ground in Ferguson for the past few days. (His Twitter account is here, and it’s a great source of updates on the situation there   [x]).

I just wanted to remind everybody that while spreading word about Michael Brown’s unjust murder and the horrifying events of the night of August 14, 2014, please do not oversimplify or ignore the complexities of the situation.

Some journalists in the town have been doing what journalists do: focusing on all the negative aspects about the community to try and make it look like a hell-hole in order to sell their own pictures and stories, and basically all many of them want to do is further their own careers. But focusing on all that negativity only paints the picture of one side of the story, ignoring a lot of other important things going on there.

Please do not fall prey to the media’s game. Anger at the actions of the police in Ferguson is totally justified, but in the midst of that we cannot allow the people who are living with the situation every day to be dehumanized. Despite all this tragedy and chaos going on around them, they’re still a community and in many ways they’re pulling through all of it together. They want peace. Anyone looting or burning things down is a very small portion of the community. The whole story is so much bigger.

A story doesn’t need tear gas to be interesting. We need to hear every side of this story, not just the horrific parts.

TL:DR: please don’t fall prey to media attempts to dehumanize and oversimplify the situation in ferguson!!

Does anyone else really want to see old Zuko with either Iroh before the series is over??? That would be so cute!

Sorry to my followers if your timeline is being bombarded with stuff about Ferguson, MO. It’s just a very sad and scary situation, and I don’t usually post things like this. If you disagree with my opinions, I respect that. All I’m asking is that you respect my opinions, too. If i reblog anything else, it’ll be super happy things!

explain-your-answer:

Everyone needs to stop jumping to conclusions about the Ferguson Police. STOP disrupting the public, STOP harassing police officers, and please OBEY the law and do what officers tell you to do. Don’t reblog things when you don’t understand any more than what you learned from a website.

No offense, but I think that the people reblogging understand what is going on. For one thing, this is not the first time this has happened. It’s happening everywhere, to countless black males. Many black people, including me, have to live through being scruntinized because of the color of our skin. Black Americans are still reeling from the civil rights movement, and many black people on tumblr may be related to at least one person who was alive during that time (and still living). So before you assume that people don’t know what they’re talking about, try to see it from their perspective, and don’t just assume that people are disobeying police officers.
